A Positive Novelty: Women and Public Life in Renaissance Florence

Front Cover
Monash Publications in History, Department of History, Monash University, 1992 - Women - 77 pages
Drawing heavily on contemporary letters and accounts, the author argues against the dominant view that the Florentine family was entirely male-dominated. She finds that women's lives were far less restricted than is commonly thought, and Florentine public life correspondingly more complex. Number 12 in the TMonash Publications in History' series.
